Author Code: ADGQ

Born: Sep. 1, 1896 - Brooklyn, New York, USA

Died: Mar. 15, 1962 - East Hampton, New York, USA

As a girl of eleven, she was travelling on the S.S. Minnetonka from England with her mother and grandparents, when she met and befriended Mark Twain, who was also returning from Europe. They began a friendship that lasted until his death in 1910. In 1907, Twain sent a telegram to Dorothy asking whether she would like an elephant or 10,000 monkeys for her birthday. She replied that she would prefer his books, which were duly sent to her, along with a small white elephant. Twain encouraged Quick to write, which she did, and became a regular contributor of short stories to the pulp magazines, such as Weird Tales, Pearson's Magazine and Unknown. She also wrote some poetry. She married John Adams Mayer in 1925. For many years, she contributed a weekly column for the East Hampton Star entitled 'What's New in New York', and 'Quick Look At Things' in the Sag Harbor Express and The County Review. She was a member of the P.E.N Club, Pen and Brush, the National League of American Penwomen, the Brooklyn Poetry Circle, Women Poets of New York and the Society of Composers, Artists and Authors. Her works include An Italian Night (1924), Scented Gardens (1932), Strange Awakening (1938), Blue and Silver Brocade (1939), Two For a Bargain (1940), A Year From Tonight (1945), The Cracks of Time (1948), The Artist and the Door (1952) and More Than Shadow (1954).
